Counting Down to the Worldwide Craftsy Meetup Party

Hi Craftsy crafters! There’s just one week to Worldwide Craftsy Meetup Party Day! Have you RSVP’d? Have you chosen a location for your party? What are you planning to do at your party?

Don’t worry if you’re the first person in your city to sign up, go ahead and RSVP!  There are lots of crafters still looking for a meetup, so you probably won’t be alone!

Here’s a note from the craftsy meetup party in Seattle:

Our group in Seattle seems to be getting really excited about the Meetup.  We are leaving it pretty open as to what we are going to do.  I have asked that everyone bring samples of the crafts that they enjoy, and at least one project that they can work on during the Meetup.  My feeling was that this first meet up would be a great time to introduce ourselves and talk about what we enjoy and what we would like to try.

There is enough variety in the crafts enjoyed by folks that we should be able to do a demonstration or two as time allows.  We are each bringing our own beverages and a snack to share.  Carissa has been kind enough to allow us to meet at her sewing studio so there are plenty of large tables to display projects and sewing machines that she says we can use if we need them to work on our projects.

I will definitely try to take my camera with me and send you some pictures to share.

Have fun, Seattle, and be sure to tell us how it goes! We can’t wait to see pictures!

      All you have to do is go check out the meetup site http://www.meetup.com/Craftsy/ and see if there are already meetups in your town. If there are, you can sign up as the “host” or organizer… or message the organizer to see if you can help.
